We had a lot of fun with Tahitian pearls this year. In September we released a huge lot of dark peacock drop strands, something we had never done or been able to do before. The next month was the Connoisseur Sale, but we could have called it the Harvest Strand month given the number of them we made. But I decided to hold something back – something special to release on Cyber Monday – the special Rikitea rounds.
Rikitea is known throughout the Tahitian pearl industry as the source for the best colors of Tahiti. The finest cherries, peacocks and dark blues overwhelmingly come from Rikitea.
We have a total of 51 selected strands that we are going to start adding to the site today and this week. They aren’t going to featured, they’ll just be added to our Round Tahitian Strands page.
What we’ve done though, is add a hidden tag on each of the strands. Starting today, if you search our site for the term Rikitea, you’ll see the strands.
Be sure to watch for the email we send out on Cyber Monday, which will contain a site-wide Pearl Point code which you can use toward any of these strands.
